tv   Today in the Bay  NBC  July 17, 2012 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
5:00. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> good morning everybody. i'm jon kelley. this morning a silicon valley shake-up. marissa mayer, google's first female engineer leading the effort to back into yahoo!'s business plan. this time as ceo. we have team coverage on the beat on yahoo!'s fifth ceo to be hired in the past five years. bob redell is live at google headquarters with a look at mayor's impact on the google products you use. we'll start off with business and tech reporter scott mcgrew at yahoo! headquarters. what do we know about mayer that leads one to believe she can be a success? >> reporter: well jon, that's an interesting question because it really depends on what you mean by success. keep in mind yahoo! is not a failed company, it's just not a very interesting company compared to, say, google or apple or facebook or even yahoo! of ten years ago. in that sort of rule she's
5:01 am
already become a success because she's generated so much excitement. she has already done that, she hasn't even shown up on first avenue in sunnyvale yet but she will later today. do keep in mind marissa mayer has never run an entire company but did help make google what it is today and brings credibility to a company that needs to attract first rate employees. remember, when it comes to silicon valley a company needs to do two things. it needs to make a product or a service that people are interested in. but it also has to attract first rate employees, and i would wager this morning there are people at facebook and at apple and yes, google, who are saying you know what, yahoo! may be something that i would like to be part of and marissa mayer has a lot to do with that. >> scott, you say she has another advantage, a different board. >> reporter: she has a very different board.
5:02 am
the board at yahoo! has been historically very difficult to work with. only hewlett-packard's is weirder. in the last couple of months the board has changed here, and i think that, along with her talent will give her a leg up over the what you mentioned, five other ceos that came before her. the others were dealing with a very peculiar board. she has a much more reasonable one and i think is going to have an easier time. >> no kidding. everybody will be watching. pressure there as well. thank you, scott. mayer is now the fifth permanent ceo that yahoo! named in the past five years. here are names you may recall. scott thompson, held the job from january to may of this year. carol bartz was fired in 2011 after two years on the job. the co-founder jerry yang resigned in november of 2008. and terry semle stepped down under shareholder pressure in 2007. >> yahoo!'s gain with mayer
5:03 am
moving is google's loss. the largest search engine looking to replace one of its most experienced leaders. bob is live in mountain view with how all of this could impact that tech giant. bob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, jon. one could make the argument that google is such a large company that someone, even like marissa mayer leaving isn't going to have a huge impact. that of course is to be seen. she certainly did make her mark here as google's 20th employee, first female engineer, she is and has been charismatic, considered one of the few public faces of this tech giant. any one who has used google on line which is pretty much the universe, will recognize some of her trademarks, mayers, the one who helped design the white google home page, she did g-mail, google news, and google images. those are her babies as well. mayer resigned her post by phone
5:04 am
yesterday afternoon, some people might have sensed that this was coming because last year google reorganized her unit, promoting another employee over her, "the new york times" suggesting that might have been enough for her to consider a move. in an e-mail to bloomberg, her former boss, google executive chairman eric schmidt wrote, quote, yahoo! made a good choice and i'm personally very excited to see another woman become ceo of a technology company. un." yesterday mayer surprised people with a second announcement, she tweeted in the afternoon that she and her husband are expecting a baby boy in october. reporting live outside google headquarters, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> congratulations all around for marissa mayer. we have a lot more about yahoo!'s new ceo and what a departure for google means. check out our website search marissa mayer. >> the csu board of trustees will debate the future of the
5:05 am
entire education system. much of the outlook weighs heavily on the voters. marla tellez is here to explain. >> it's the tax hike proposal in november, 2$250 million at the end of this year so the board has a big meeting in long beach to plan for the proverbial rainy day. it's debating two options, the first is raise tuition by about 5% or $150 per semester. non-resident tuition would go up by 9%. also under this plan employee pay and benefits would be cut by 2.5%. the second option is to cut enrollment by some 6,000 students. fewer students means fewer faculty and staff so about 750 employees would be let go.
5:06 am
pay and benefits in this scenario would drop about 5%. ultimately the board has decided between the lesser of two evils, 400,000 students and faculty and staff. jon, the meeting gets under way at 9:00 this morning but according to the agenda they aren't going to take this up until 1:15 this afternoon. >> thank you very much. a possible pg&e cover-up is uncovered two years before the san bruno pipe line explosion, the chronicle reporting that pg&e issued a memo suggesting managers consider downgrading certain leaks instead of fixing them. the 2008 memo reportedly details how the company could save $5 million by downgrading the leaks to where they only had to be monitored. at the time they had a bonus system in place that rewarded supervisors who crews found fewer leaks and lowered repair costs. that program was later
5:07 am
suspended. >> right now several east bay families waiting to see if they can get back in their apartments this morning. 20 people were displaced after a two-alarm fire destroyed one unit and damaged another ot a complex on cherry street. it happened last night. no one was hurt. the red cross jumped in to assist. >> 5:08 on a tuesday morning. let's check in with meteorologist christina loren to check out what's happening today and the week ahead. >> good morning to you. we've got a great looking day shaping up. for outdoor activities, for anything that you want to do, without overheating because temperatures are going to climb. we're going to get a good looking forecast as we head throughout the next couple days, then the heat is on. let's get to it. no fog on the golden gate bridge but fog to show you on the san francisco camera. i want to point out visibility looking good across the board for now. that will change as we head throughout the next couple hours, that fog will start to settle in especially on the peninsula and up in marin
5:08 am
county. i think even napa valley will be socked in. but the fog will not hang out all day and the temperatures climb from the 50s right now into the 70s in the warmer cities by noon rounding out the day. 77 degrees inland at 4:00, 64 degrees at the coast. here's mike and your drive. >> we'll take you to 580 again where we saw early slowing into livermore out of the altamont pass. this may become compounded by the fact there is a crate now reported in lanes, the middle lane. that's not enough to kick off all of the slowing so likely more cars hitting earlier and that crate in the lane. we'll watch for the traffic break. chp is still getting on the scene. on the left 680 construction between bollinger canyon and el costa. down to one lane in the southbound direction. sunol, an easy drive through 880 and milpitas as well. the southbound side has the off
5:09 am
ramp being worked on. that's the reason for the closure of that off ramp. should be opened by 5:00. construction for 85 on the left side of the screen, southbound side between 237 and 101, we have construction blocking two lanes, more construction fremont and moffitt boulevard. the bay bridge, look at this, easy drive. clear view now of the east shore freeway but the clouds are hovering around. fog could be a factor later on. >> 5:10. coming up, from the gridiron to iron bars, how a bay area football star wound up in cuffs. >> we take a live look outside, that is over san francisco. you can see the transamerica building to the left and some of the clouds mike mentioned. >> check us out on facebook.

5:13 am
oakland native and seattle seahawks attended the night he was arrested. lynch was taken to jail where he was cited and released. his driver's license was revoked back in 2008 after he was involved in a hit and run. he was also suspend forward three games in 2009 after pleading guilty a misdemeanor weapons charge. >> a state investigation continues over misused funds in the parks and recreation department. internal audit revealing more than $271,000 spent on a secret buy-out program. 56 employees from the department's headquarters allegedly sold unused vacation time back to the state. the program was never authorized by sacramento. so far no charges have been filed. some staffers may be disciplined. >> mark zuckerberg, a member of the so called 1%, he refinanced his home. get this, at 1%.
5:14 am
what a deal. not bad if you've got the money. i thought we were going to see his house. he refinanced his $6 million mortgage with a 30-year adjustable rate starting at 1%. rock bottom rate available to high earners. ultra high. >> the banks do these low rates because there is almost low risk. the people they provide the loans to have the ability to pay all cash. the client's happy because it frees up the equity for more effective, more lucrative investments. >> zuckerberg won't have to worry about higher rates soon. the fed is expected to keep rates low until at least 2014. >> that's good when you're a billionaire. facebook not the favorite. google plus climbing to the top with customer satisfaction. facebook is the most popular with hundreds of millions of
5:15 am
users, some people don't like it. facebook, complaints include too many ads, privacy concerns and unexpected changes. google plus does not use traditional advertising. other sites such as linked in and twitter weren't high on the scale as google or google plus. but more likes than facebook. >> i have a google plus account. >> she's good at this so keep an eye on her. >> you're about to get more than a daily deal on living social. >> that's right. get ready. for that and the rest of the news before the bell let's turn it over to bertha coombs. always good to see you, bertha. >> good to see you, jon and laura. we're glad to see the futures turning a bit higher. it has been seven mondays in a row, i don't know what it is but every monday the dow ends in the red. markets dropped yesterday on
5:16 am
disappointing retail sales data, the international monetary fund cutting its global growth. this morning asia and europe are higher and we're higher ahead of data we expect on consumer prices, industrial production and housing. we've gotten some pretty good earnings reports so far from coca-cola and goldman sachs, both of them beat johnson and johnson not quite as robust as some looking for, also waiting mattel. ben bernanke will be testifying on the economy before a senate panel tomorrow he goes before the house, that's going to set the tone. see if he says more about more stimulative quantitative easing the dow ended 12729, the nasdaq down 11 points to 2896. and living social is starting to sell merchandise. able to buy a small range of discounted items between $40 and $50. the first relates to a trip to

5:18 am
be your motivation this morning as well. the weather's going to be nice. you don't have to worry about any fog on the highway except for right at the coast at this point. we're expecting 280, even 87, 85, some of the south bay highways to get soft as we head through the next hour there is will abfull deck of clouds as you make your way out. the clouds are going to keep us mild this afternoon. this is san jose. the the sun is starting to come out but it's very dark here indicative of the cloud cover situated above. right to the numbers this morning. we're watching wind speeds n. is why i'm watching for the fog to develop. san francisco, you had a pretty good breeze at 5 to 10 miles per hour. the fog will be able to settle to the surface so we don't have flight delays, christie smith is live at sfo. we're looking pretty good. all major carriers reporting flights on time. if you are headed to the east coast, grab your cool weather
5:19 am
clothes. 57 degrees in san francisco. they cook on the east coast. they're getting that ridge of high pressure that normally warms us up but for us, instead we're getting an area of low pressure. very strong front here has come through the bay area. that kicked up all of the winds. potent piece of energy. temperatures are going to stay cool. a weak trough that came through. foggy breeze for today. then finally as you head through wednesday and the remainder of the week we'll see high pressure build back in. as it does so it's going to warm us up quickly. we'll get one more day, today and tomorrow, before that nice air mixes out. 83 by thursday, then the 90s return friday into monday. it's going to be shot this weekend. that's good news if you've been meaning to hit the beach. warm weather saturday into sunday. 5:20. wherever you're headed mike knows what you expect. >> we expect these crews to

5:41 am
street will be listening to what he has to say. meanwhile, here on capitol hill, this will all take place against the backdrop of that so called fiscal cliff, december 31 deadline that congress, if they don't do anything taxes go up on everyone. spending cuts kick in across the board, both military and on the domestic side. right now the partisan battle lines have been drawn. >> going off the fiscal cliff if they don't get their way. >> i will absolutely continue this debate into 2013 rather than lock in a long term deal this year that throws middle class families under the bus. >> each side locking into their positions not just here but on the campaign trail. president obama blaming congress, and saying that mitt romney would take the country in the wrong direction, romney at a million dollar fundraiser told his supporters that president obama is standing behind his own
5:42 am
millionaire supporters and forsaking the middle class. now back to you. >> thank you, brian. it's 5:42. one of yahoo!'s former foes taking over the company. today is marissa mayer's first day on the job as yahoo! ceo. we have team coverage on google's loss and yahoo!'s gain. bob has a look at mayer and her impact on the google product we use. we begin with scott mcgrew live at yahoo! headquarters. this is hardly the first time you have covered a new ceo at that company. >> reporter: actually, i had to write them down. yang, david yang, he started the company, cougle, semle, yank, barts, scott thompson, ross levinson up to what, yesterday, and this morning of course marissa mayer.
5:43 am
kind of foolish to assume based on that long history that she's going to stick around long. but i think that's exactly what people hope will happen. mayer comes to yahoo! from google where she was employee number 20, the first woman engineer hired at google and has been the most public face as well. mayer of course more than a face, she's a very incredibly talented engineer, very smart, talented leader who it's hoped will re-energize yahoo!. mayer come you wills after the dismissal of scott thompson who said he had a computer science degree, he did not. and he left the company. mayer very much has a computer science degree from stanford. as you well know she is not the first woman ceo of yahoo! not even the first woman ceo of yahoo! with a computer science degree. here is a picture of her meeting with president obama. also in that picture is carol bartz, who was the ceo of yahoo! and had her degree from
5:44 am
university of wisconsin. when mayer arrived at work this morning there will be loose ends to tie up. there are layoffs that have not been finished and yahoo! reports its quarterly profits today, this afternoon. mayer has indicated she will not be on the conference call with reporters which is very reasonable. today is her first day. she'll get some sense of what's going on here, jon and laura, then i'm sure we'll hear from her shortly thereafter. >> scott mcgrew, thank you for all of the insight. and mayer will become the second woman to take charge at yahoo! as scott mentioned. the first was carol bartz who ran the company from 2009-2011. mayer the newest addition to a growing list of female power players. other women include meg whitman, cheryl sandberg of facebook who took a seat on the board and
5:45 am
virginia romany, the leader of ibm. mayer has often downplayed the gender debate. telling what's really important is if you're a geek. people ask me a lot what it's like to abwoman at google. i don't think of my experience that way. i'm a geek at google. a geek doing very well. female power players appear supportive of mayer in public. meg whitman saying she is a talented and creative executive. yahoo! is one of silicon valley's great brands and i'm sure marisa's leadership, intelligence and passion will guide them to a bright future. >> at google the company searching to replace one of its most experienced leaders. bob redell is live in mountain view with an update including how much of a surprise this departure of mayer was to google. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning. certainly it's a surprise to go to yahoo!. she resigned at google yesterday
